Any CAR (Corporación Autónoma Regional) (Regional Autonomous Corporation) is a public corporate entity integrated with all other relevant territorial authorities that together belong to a geographical basin or ecosystem and they are in charge of enforcing the environmental policies of the Ministerio del Medio Ambiente (Ministry of Environment) in that specific region.
They were first mentioned in Article 23, Law 99 of December 22, 1993, and then each CAR was established by a particular Decree later.

The full list of CAR's is seen here (total of 33):

The image CORPOGUAVIO can be found here:

However there's currently a Bill in Congress that estipulates the closure of 32 of these CAR's given the poor response and bad management that they faced during the 2010 local flood crisis.

All the CAR's are represented in ASOCARS, the Association of all the CAR's. Each CAR has its own logo and flag.
For the logos of all 33 CAR's please see the following:
